CIDEF is an excellent study abroad opportunity for French majors and minors who are seeking an immersive semester or academic year in France.
Students can earn 12-15 credits during a fall or spring semester at CIDEF, with all classes being taught in French for a total linguistic immersion.
Université Catholique de l'Ouest (UCO) is located in Angers, approximately 1.5 hours from Paris by train.
ISU students are required to stay with a local host family arranged by the CIDEF staff.
